Last week, Billboard revealed its list of Top 50 Money Makers of 2016: those music artists who raked in the most cash last year. But as the publication now notes, there’s only one artist whose earning power is so strong that they’ve appeared on every edition of the list for the past seven years.
Believe it or not, it’s Elton John. While the pop-rock legend has never topped the list, he’s been on it every year since 2010. On the latest Billboard tally, he ranked #32. For 2015, he was #15, while he was #35 on the 2014 list. From 2010 to 2013, he was #33, #13, #29 and #33, respectively.
Paul McCartney, meanwhile, gets honorable mention: He’s appeared on the list seven times too, but one of those times was with his old group, The Beatles, who ranked #24 in 2011, the year their catalog finally hit iTunes.
